May had called the snap election with a view to increasing the narrow majority she inherited from her predecessor David Cameron.

But in one of the most sensational nights in British electoral history, a resurgent Labour Party denied her an outright win, throwing the country into political turmoil as no clear victor emerged. "I and other colleagues have made that clear to her".
